Google Opinion Rewards App That Pays for Surveys Is Now Available in Thailand

Google Opinion Rewards is now available in Thailand. The quick survey app that pays users for answering questions debuted in 2013 and besides Thailand, is currently available in India and 27 other countries. Google Opinion Rewards app lets you answer surveys in exchange for Google Play credit for Android users and PayPal money for iOS users. Besides being available now in Thailand, too, the changelog has no other update, so the addition is likely to be part of a server-side change.

Thailand has been added to the list of countries Google Opinion Rewards app can be downloaded and used in, as visible on Google’s support page and the changelog of the app on Google Play.
